    Plan on an interesting and enlightening evening with a focus on VHF DSC.

    The NOR is familiar yet rewritten so please review carefully for several changes.

    If your old DHF shirt is wearing out, more available at the BAMA Store. The 2013 DHF shirts will be available to pick up or risk it being sold to the highest bidder!

      We should have your shirts at skippers Meeting.
      I'll check tonight at OYC to see if they have the trophy.

      Check the MEL's and the required readings/viewings.
      cheers

          SI and other updates

          SI revised and posted https://www.jibeset.net/BAMA000.php?RG=T00648604
          (Equipment Item 10) and remember when you plan equipment, budget, energy management.

          "REQUIRED RADIO CHECK-INs
          All yachts are required to monitor VHF Channel 16 before
          and during the race. (Bring extra batteries, if necessary.) "

          Monitor http://www.sfbama.org/2014/DHF/index.html for additional updates

          Suggest you do the required readings one or so at a time. Here's the 1st

          1- At least pages 1 through 17 of the US Sailing
          Independent Review Panel report on that fatal
          incident. That report can be found here on the
          BAMA web site. http://www.sfbama.org/fs/Farallones%...%20Sailing.pdf

            First: Disregard the word "effective" in Item 10 equipment "minimum effective length"
            Second: A suggestion this week on required readings
            2. Rescue of the crew of “Pterodactyl” http://www.sfbama.org/fs/2008%20Pter...l%20Rescue.pdf and http://www.latitude38.com/lectronic/...ayid=95#Story2

                  Now that we have DSC radios, are we supposed to be monitoring channel 16 or 70? Or one of the other DSC channels?

                    Excellent questions/topic. Lets start a FAQs for skippers meeting.
                    The answers are in the SI and not on top of my brain. I'll check and report later so as to not mis speak.
                    We will have a lot of focus on DSC at the skippers meeting. Please bring a dsc handheld with MMSI registered and entered into jibeset as required for entry.
                    We will at least have a boat nearby to act as a vessel in distress (help me! find me!). We will have a transportable fixed mount radio at the meeting to serve as RC. The racers are asked to bring handhelds to represent fleet. Hopefully we can get some screen videos of various radios during the exercise. We are working with the CG on this topic so please keep ideas/questions coming.

                      REQUIRED RADIO CHECK-INs
                      All yachts are required to monitor VHF Channel 16 before
                      and during the race. (Bring extra batteries, if necessary.)
                      All yachts must check in with the Race Committee on VHF
                      Channel 69. At all times, channel 71 will be used for all other
                      race communications. The official channel for race
                      communications, except for check-ins, will be 71. Yachts that
                      attempt to check in on channel 71 will be directed to channel
                      69.
                      The request for check-in shall include division number,
                      yacht name, sail number. The check-in shall not be complete
                      until the race committee acknowledges the entry by repeating
                      the identity of the racing yacht.
                      Example:
                      Yacht, Seahorse: “This is the yacht Seahorse, sail number
                      54321, checking in for division 4. Over."
                      RC: "Seahorse, this is Race Committee. Sail number
                      54321 is checked in for Division 4. Out."
                      If you do not hear a confirmation from the Race Committee,
                      assume you have not been checked in.

                      WITHDRAWALS
                      Any yacht withdrawing from the race for any reason must
                      contact the Race Committee via VHF Channel 16, 71, or via
                      telephone 650-394-6343 as soon as possible, and then again
                      once on the bay side of the Golden Gate Bridge. If retiring by
                      radio, make sure the race committee acknowledges your
                      withdrawal. Yachts identified as having started, but not finishing
                      or withdrawing will result in phone calls to the skipper and crew
                      emergency phone numbers, and then if not found, will result in
                      a USCG response. Withdrawing yachts that fail to comply with
                      this provision shall be denied entry in next year’s race.

                      ROLL CALLS
                      A roll call will be held at 9:00 p.m. and half-hourly thereafter
                      for all yachts still racing. The race committee will call each
                      yacht, which shall respond with the yacht's name, position with
                      respect to the Golden Gate Bridge, and speed over ground.
                      Example:
                      "Seahorse, this is BAMA Race Committee for a roll call."
                      "Race Committee, this is Seahorse. My position is 1.4 nm
                      west of the Bridge. Speed over ground 4 knots."
                      Seahorse, this is Race Committee. 1.4 west, 4 knots. Out"
                      The check in shall not be considered as having been
                      completed until the race committee acknowledges receipt of
                      the call by repeating the information received from the racing
                      yacht.

                          OYC, March 19 says the NOR.

                          I would guess around 7:00 PM?

                            official agenda details being worked but opens at 5:30 (may be dress rehearsals of DSC stuff)
                            Officially 7pm OYC
                            -Freak waves, incident reviews, motivation for DSC
                            -CG general comments and then ops specialist/ command center on DSC
                            -RC/Racer side of DSC product and simple demo
                            -SI review
                            -More elaborate DSC demo/workshop

                            Hopefully we'll have enough smartphones to grab some video of several handhelds- then we could compile/edit. See email
                            cheers
